March Auction of Canadian and International Artwork (Online Auction)

The March Online auction, originally scheduled to close on March 17th has been "paused" for the time being.

With the ongoing concern and adjustments to public life occurring in response to COVID-19 in Canada and globally, we have arrived at this difficult decision to not only address public safety and health, but to also ensure that the auction closes at a time and within a climate that is fair to our bidders and consignors.
This situation is far from ideal and there is no “playbook” in responding to such a crisis, however we feel that this course of action is the most responsible to all parties involved in our sales.
Once the sale is re-opened, all bidding in place at the pause will be active once again, with a period of time allowing clients to participate fairly in the sale. We will be providing updates to our clients and look forward to being of service.
